with me here, guys. steve weiss, give me a comment about what we're witnessing in the nation's capital, but more broadly, what we're seeing in the markets today. >> yeah, you could probably -- on first blush, you could tie the testimony and the acrimonyny going on in d.c. with a slightly declining market. as you look underneath, you see the health care stocks, with the exception of hospital stocks, cyh, reporting today, they're basically flat. so slightly trading lower, but not a big deal. to me, where we're at in the market is you have to take just a little bit of risk off, your trading risk. but it's still the only game in town. nothing goes up in a straight line, however. that's what i've done. >> yeah. these comments from larry fink yesterday up in chicago at a -- at a conference, that the markets are starting to look a little overzealous, pete. >> yeah. >> that you do have bubble-like markets. what's your thought there? is he right? >> i would agree with him. i don't know if everybody on the desk agrees with that comment. i do. when i look at what's going on in the markets and you

"halftime". pete, where's the love in the rally? >> i think it doesn't really take a lot to find some of the love. i think part of the problem is the fact that the financials really have not participated this in quarter. look over at some of the industrial names, i pick out ge, one of the names that i like. we've seen a lot of option paper in there look at energy names, i'm not talking about the big cap energy that everybody always likes to focus on. i'm looking at some of the mid tier names, shale names, scott. when looking at whiting

? is it elsewhere? it's "halftime report," let's play the action. steve weiss, where's the opportunity right now? >> still in the u.s. what i'm really concerned about is the euro. that will make the export of germany, every country is dependent on, iffy. if you break out financials, the european markets aren't that cheap. there are turnt opportunities t but you need more laser focus than the u.s. >> euro's, what, a two-year high at 1.38, and that will be an issue in europe, is it not? steve weiss is even worried about it as even investing over there right now. >> i agree with him, and i think it will hold them back, judge. it will clearly be a headwind for employment over there, even though they've done better than we have as of late with employment, they still have some real issues with 1.38 euro trying to sell outside the euro zone. that will be a big challenge. and i don't think the economies are as robust. i think they're up and down all over the place. between spain and italy, of course. throw in croatia and some of the other spots. i think germany, obviously, strong. but i would much rathe

be able to manage money belonging to steve cohn, the founder, certain employees and his family members. >> hey, kate, couple questions this morning. one is this doesn't resolve any potential criminal liability for steve cohn, the man himself, is that true? >> well, let me give you a dual answer to that. i mean, i guess it doesn't, although i think if they had the material for a criminal individual case against cohen, they probably would have brought it at this point. now they continue to try current and former traders. in two weeks from now we'll see the trial of michael steinberg and i assume the fbi continues to try to turn witnesses against him. so i think you can't rule that out in the future, but i would probably not expect it at this point. >> the only reason i ask is because if you remember and you remember so well given -- now we're talking about a $1.8 billion settlement, 600 was already from a prior settlement, some people meant the whole thing was over. here we are they would argue we're sort of double dipping. it seems to me they're taking a second bite at the apple, why no

you are going to see housing accelerate through the fall. >> steve, are you as optimistic? >> i don't know if i am optic mystic in the short-term but in the long-term, i am very optimistic. if you look at housing starts, we have not built this few homes going back to the 50s. we are literally building nothing. >> this isn't a supply story. contracts for sale of existing homes fell by 5%. that has nothing to do with the supply. >> it has nothing to do with supply but the fact of the matter is, over the longer picture for a long-term investor, there is actually going to be very little supply out there. over time, that will impact pricing and statistics like this. month to month is very difficult to predict. over the long-term, housing will be in short supply as population continues. if we get household formations back to where they were pre-2007, there will be a dearth of housing. >> people's propensity to buy homes has changed. there is a different atmosphere in the country. people got burnt by housing. they may be more reluctant to go in. you used to buy a house, because you assumed

a five-year low. steve liesman is here to explain what it means for you and the economy more broadly. first to eamon javers in washington to explain how we got here. >> hi, tyler. the obama administration sees this one as a big win this week. remember that fiscal cliff deal that we had at the end of last year's crisis in washington? what they did was, they raised taxes, and they cut spending through the sequester. and that's had a fairly predictable result. it's been good for the deficit. take a look at this chart, and you'll see the deficit as a percent of gdp has gone down dramatically since 2009 when it was 9.2%. 2013, just 4.1%. 79% of the decrease the government says it due to tax receipts. record tax receipts in 2013, up $325 billion from 2012. that's up 13%. so the tax man is getting his cut of this improving economy and also as a result of those tax increases. that has led to this lowering of the u.s. deficit. that's something the obama administration says is a good thing. they feel like, you know, it's not getting enough attention here in all of this hullabaloo here in washi
